, but now we have agreement that these are going to be good-paying jobs because they're going to be union jobs, inside the arena as well as outside the arena. this is important. many of us often talk about labor peace, but i am, i think in these days, talking more about labor confidence and labor happiness because labor peace often says there's a dispute going on. here we're going way beyond dispute. we're actually making some assurances that our people who work the jobs in and outside of the arena will get the respect that they deserve. this is oftentimes -- if we lay that out early, and i think this is what the warriors are doing, they're breeding confidence in our labor force. not only do you have peace, but you can have confidence that you can have families around you supported by the jobs that we're creating here because they're going to be union-paying jobs. so, according to the fiscal feasibility report that is now on file officially with our city, we have indicated that there will be over 4300 direct jobs that will be created city-wide as a result of the what r warriors arena bein

of the transport union, local 258. just to go off a little of what my colleague just mentioned the rest room facilities, we have over 40 percent of the terminal stations that would be the end of the line of each line and it does not have a rest room for our operators and i just want to speak briefly on the perspective of the increased workers cost and i sit on the wellness committee as the union representative and what we see is ongoing budgeting medical costs secondary to operators to, you know, first, the stress level of the job is very, very, intense, and second of all, when you get in a situation where you work on some routes that are three hours one way, that would be between 29 sunset to the southeastern portion of the town. the folks don't have a place to use the rest room. we have gone and gone in the last year to try to get the uta to move on this project and one of the things that they continually come back to us is that there is a lack of funding and so the reason that i approached this board today, is to try to put out a general call, not only to the transportation authority but

questions about right to work states. stuart: but if indiana had been a state which forces union dues to be paid by members, nonmembers, if it were the old line state, i don't think you could say it would get these kind of jobs and they are new high-tech jobs. >> but do we know that? i'm a little skeptical about that. only 7% of the country is even unionized anymore. i'm a little skeptical that people are not going somewhere because of that. stuart: why wouldn't toyota when it starts a new plant in america or bmw or mercedes or honda, they have all have plants in america, and they tend to go to right to work states like indiana. >> because i think if you give a business owner the opportunity to not have to deal with a union, they will probably choose that because they don't want -- but at the same time, i'm not sure that -- you know, there are certain places that people are going to go because there are good workers. look, i don't think people should be forced to pay dues. i do have a problem with that. stuart: that's what the michigan rule is all about. >> that's what it is about. we
